The singalong for the occasion of Queen Elizabeth’s 94th birthday will take place at 9 am on 21 April 2020.
The Queen is set to celebrate her 94th birthday on 21 April but this one will be very different.
In honour of this special occasion, there are calls for the people country to come together to sing Happy Birthday. It will be in the same way the nation claps for the NHS at 8 pm every Thursday. It is very much anticipated that the public will unite to send a message of faith and solidarity to the longest-ruling British monarch.
Among those championing the idea is Ben Fogle. Ben took to Twitter to spread the word. “It is the Queen’s birthday next Tuesday. Let’s throw her a surprise,” he wrote. “At 9 am 21st April, we are calling on the whole country to sing Happy Birthday from our windows and doorsteps. Let our song bring good cheer to Her Majesty. #singforthequeen.”

The Queen, who has already cemented her place in the heart of the nation, earlier this month spread a message of unity. It was when she sent a rallying message to the people of Great Britain.
Speaking in a pre-recorded message from Windsor Castle, where she is self-isolating with Prince Philip, the monarch spoke of the difficulties of self-isolation but reassured the country, saying: “We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.”
Queen Elizabeth, as we all know, celebrates two birthdays every year. Her Majesty was born on 21 April 1926, but her official birthday is in June. This celebration is famously referred to as Trooping the Colour.
